In the ’50s, Dewey’s notoriety was reaching new heights. In 1951, he waxed his first recording with the Louisiana Rhythmaires led by Elise Deshotel and Maurice Barzas for George Khoury’s Lake Charles-based label. Exactly when this recording was done is unknown but at some point Elise and some of his group recorded the "Two Step De Kindergarden" (#620). It's a quick-paced, accordion-led instrumental.

Nathan's group would play with Elise from time to time as well as Elise playing with Nathan's group. When Nathan Abshire's regular guitar player, Ernest Thibodeaux, wasn't available, his substitutes on guitar were Harry Lafleur, Preston Manuel, or Elise Deshotel.
